Prairie Creek Boat Ramp Closure Planned


By WSIL Manager

WSIL -- The Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge is advising visitors of an upcoming ramp closure.

The boat ramp at the Prairie Creek Recreation Area will be closed for approximately one week beginning Monday, June 23. The boat ramp is located about a mile west of John A. Logan College on the south side of Route 13.

The refuge says the closure is to allow crews to remove soil contaminated by leaking fuel tanks associated with the former Images Marina. The boat ramp will reopen once the work is completed.
